Sweet Dreams

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

For the background, I ran a piece of Milk Card through the Grand Calibur with the Creative Expressions Checkerboard PinPoint Embossing Folder. Using a piece of Cut n Dry Foam, I picked up a little Gold Cosmic Shimmer Shimmer Paint from my Craft Sheet and rubbed it over the surface.

I stamped the image from the Justrite Butterflies Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Gold Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using one of the dies from Sue's Decorative Frames Die Set from the Italian Collection and inked through the die with Scattered Straw Distress Ink. I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Doily One Stamp Set several times using Gold Cosmic Shimmer Shimmer Paint. I inked around the edges with a little of the Gold Paint.

I cut a Justrite Heirloom Flourish Two out of Milk Card and inked through the die with Scattered Straw.

I made some flowers out of Gold Tulle using Sue's Classic Rose Die Set and following the technique she demonstrated when she did the Weekender on Create & Craft last month. I cut a couple of Faux Quilled Leaves out of Milk Card.

I assembled the card as shown adding some Cream Pearls and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Vanilla PVA around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.

Shows today on Create & Craft

Hi Bloggers.

I have shows today on Create & Craft at 12noon on the Toolshed for 2 hours - this one is with Sue Wilson, and at 5pm. Hope you can join us.

I have a 3-fer for you today to try and show you the versatility of the Justrite Heirloom Flourish Two Die. I used it one way on yesterday's post. There are some ideas on the Justrite Stampers Blog here which is where I found inspiration for the cards on today's post.

Here's the first card -

The background is a piece of Coconut White Card run through the Grand Calibur with the Creative Expressions Rows of Bows PinPoint Embossing Folder. I inked around the edges with Stonewashed Adirondack Dye Ink.

I stamped the image frome the Justrite Butterflies Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Lagoon Lilac Aurora Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Spellbinders Marvelous Squares and inked through the die with Stomewashed Ink.

I cut 4 of the Justrite Heirloom Flourish Two Dies out of Periwinkle Card and inked through the die with Stonewashed Ink. I cut a square Spellbinders Die and positioned the Heirloom Flourish Two Die Cuts with removeable tape. I placed the image die cut on top and when happy with the layout secured with 3d Foam Pads.


I finished the card off by adding some White Pearls and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pastel Blue PVA around the edges.

Here's the second card (please don't tell me you don't like pink!) -

For the background on this one, I ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Creative Expressions Floral Brocade PinPoint Embossing Folder. I inked around the edges with Pink Sherbet Adirondack Dye Ink.

I stamped the image from the Justrite Butterflies Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer True White Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Sue's Decorative Frames Dies (from the Italian Collection) and inked through the die with Pink Sherbet Ink.

I popped a Spellbinders Classic Squares Small inside a Spellbinders Captivating Squares Die and cut out from some pink card. I inked through the die with Pink Sherbet. I cut 4 Justrite Heirloom Flourish Two Dies and inked through the die with Pink Sherbet. I glued them to the frame as shown.


I assembled the card as shown adding some White Pearls and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Cosmic Pearl PVA around the edges.

Here's the last card -

For the background, I ran a piece of Coconut White Card through the Grand Calibur with the Creative Expressions Checkerboard PinPoint Embossing Folder.

I stamped the image from the Justrite Doily One Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer Gold Detail Embossing Powder. I covered the image with a piece of Double Sided Self Adhesive Sheet. I placed a Spellbinders Classic Squares Small Die over it and die cut. I peeled off the covering sheet to reveal the adhesive and added Iced Snow Cosmic Shimmer Glitter Jewels. I cut a Spellbinders Classic Squares Large Die out of Vintage Gold Card.

I cut 4 Justrite Heirloom Flourish Two Dies out of Vintage Gold Card and secured them at the back of the square die cut with Cosmic Shimmer Dries Clear Glue.

I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Rose Bouquet Vintage Labels 7 Clear Stamp Set using Perfect Medium and embossed with Gold Detail Powder. I added a piece of Double Sided Self Adhesive Sheet and cut out with Justrite Vintage Labels 7 Dies. I removed the covering sheet and added some Iced Snow. I cut a Justrite Vintage Tag Die out of Vintage Gold Card.

I cut a piece of Gold Tulle, knotted it and trimmed it. I tied a bow using White Crochet Ribbon and added a White Crystal Sparkler.

I assembled the card as shown adding some White Pearls in the corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Cosmic Pearl PVA around the edges.

I hope you have enjoyed today's 3-fer. See you at 12.

Thanks for stopping by.

Sneak Peek

Hi Bloggers.

As promised here's a sneak peek from tomorrow's shows. It features one of our new PinPoint Embossing Folders. We're very excited about these! I have them all in stock in my Amazon Store - just click on the link in the second sentence. By the way, I also have Sue's new dies in stock now - you can see them here.

 So, the background is our new Floral Brocade PinPoint Embossing Folder run through the Grand Calibur with a piece of Coconut White Card and then inked around the edges with Stonewashed Adirondack Dye Ink using Cut n Dry Foam.

I stamped the Justrite Sculpted Leaves Background onto Periwinkle Card using Perfect Medium and embossed with True White Detail Embossing Powder. I inked around the edges with Stonewashed Ink and matted it onto a piece of Cobalt Card. I stamped the image panel from the Justrite Rose Bouquet Vintage Labels 7 Clear Stamp Set, again onto Periwinkle Card using Perfect Medium and embossed with True White Powder. I cut it out using Justrite Vintage 7 Dies and inked through the die with Stomewashed Ink. I cut 2 Justrite Heirloom Flourish 2 Dies out of Coconut White Card and inked through the die with Stonewashed Ink. I used these to 'hold hands' with the Vintage Labels 7 die cut. I popped this on top of the Sculpted Leaves Background with 3d Foam.

I made 2 flowers out of White Crochet Ribbon and cut a couple of Sue's Faux Quilled Leaves out of Cobalt Card.

I assembled the card as shown adding some White Pearls in the corners and some dots of Pastel Blue PVA around the edges.

Thanks for stoping by.

Proud of You

Hi Bloggers.

Back home - exhausted! Today will be mostly unpacking, washing and food shopping.

Here's today's card -

Haven't had a messy background for a while. I started by spritzing a piece of Coconut White Card with Cosmic Shimmer Grape Crush Ink Spray Mist. I then inked through the Openwork Mask with Dusty Concord Distress Ink using Cut n Dry Foam. With the stamp in my hand, I randomly stamped the Justrite Baroque Frame Background using Dusty Concord. I repeated the process with the Fern Fronds A6 Background using Seedless Preserves Distress Ink. Once the ink was dry, I inked around the whole piece with Cool Peri Adirondack Dye Ink.

I stamped the sentiment from the Justrite Congrats Vintage Labels 3 & 7 Stamp Set onto Mauve Card using Perfect Medium and embossed with Cosmic Shimmer True White Detail Embossing Powder. I cut it out using Justrite Vintage Labels 7 Dies and inked through the die with Dusty Concord. I stamped the frame from the same stamp set, again using Perfect Medium and embossed with White Powder. I cut it out using Justrite Vintage Labels 3 and inked through the die with Dusty Concord. I cut a Spellbinders Luscious Labels One Die and inked through the die with Dusty Concord.

I tied a bow using 2 lengths of Silver Silky Crush Ribbon and added a White Crystal Sparkler.

I assembled the card as shown adding some White Pearls in the corners and some dots of Cosmic Shimmer Pearlescent PVA in Vintage Plum around the edges.

Thanks for stopping by.
